"Amazing. WOW what a phone"4.5 starson by yiannigr
Pros: That screen, the operating system (windows but not really), the size is just perfect, the seamless operation of everything, great on the eyes, works great with zune (if you like that sort of thing).
Cons: The keypad needs some getting used to, the keys are small, no back key, and this is beyond me.
But for me the worst is it's inability to sync with outlook.
Summary: I have never had an iphone, or an android phone, but I always envied all those people who had one. Access to all those applications had something to do with it.
But I was a windows die hard, my Tilt 2, my Tilt, My Cingular 8525, I think, and my Audiovox, had served me well all this time. But envy is envy, and it would not go away until I got my hands on my Focus. I am envious no longer.
Even though they call it Windows phone 7, this is not Windows. This is a stunning new operating system, that I think, will amaze people.
I have apps, not a lot, but I have them, and they are good. I was able to see a movie on it, through the Netflix app. That was awesome to me.
The emailing system, via hotmail, is beautiful, but so is everything else.
I purchased a separate 8GB microSD card, Sandisk, certified as the manual says, and worked nicely. If you decide to install one, download the manual and follow the instructions. Just like that 16GB of storage, and after a barrage of downloads, I have 13GB left.
My only issue is it's inability to sync with outlook directly. all I have is in outlook, but there are ways around it, and I will find a solution.
No cut and paste they say, and I really don't care, it will come sooner or later.
Definitely a beautiful phone, a great operating system, different ,powerful, and a great all around alternative to ios4 and android.
I love my Focus.
